February 10 - Character Sketch of My Hero

 

It's difficult to describe my hero because I've never actually seen him but I can give you his attributes. He is stern when needed and gentle the rest of the time. He loves without question even when I hurt him. He doesn't see me as a servant or a female or a Canadian or white. He sees me as a reflection of himself—a tainted reflection. He ignores the taint and loves me as though I am perfect. He forgives me each time I fail him which is sometimes moment by moment. He offers me advice when I need it and gives me comfort when no one else can. He holds my hand in the darkness and guides me into bright sunshine.

 

I don't know his hair colour or the shade of his irises. I can't tell you how tall he is; whether he strides through a room or saunters. I can't tell you much about his actual being other than his name but I have no doubt that Jesus loves me. He is my hero.

Donna, thanks for your reflection and description of your hero, Jesus Christ. I especially enjoyed this: "He sees me as a reflection of himself--a tainted reflection. He ignores the taint and loves me as though I am perfect." How marvelous, how wonderful!

The only real One worthy of being called a hero! (And this is why all my other heroes are fictional. Even then they're second-best compared to Christ)
